Lobby Talk, New Teachers and More!

I apologise for the length of this post but we have a lot to talk about!


To start with, our new Lobby Talk system. We have been testing it for the previous two weeks and so far it has been a great success.


Lobby talk is where students can sit down with one of our English teachers and talk about anything! The teacher will be helping the students learn to relax in an English environment and practice their speech.


Currently we have lobby talk with the following schedule:


Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
4pm until 5pm: For Primary school aged students
6pm until 7pm: For High school (Junior and Senior) aged students.


10:30am until 11:30am: For Primary school aged students
11:30am until 12:30pm: For High school (Junior and Senior) aged students.

午前10:30から 11:30:小学生向け
午前11:30から 12:30:高校生(中学生および上級者)向け

This service is free for all of our current students, and ¥1000 per month for any non-students.


So please, feel free to call up our front desk and book your child in for lobby talk.


Our New Teachers!


I have been looking forward to writing about this!


We have been busy recruiting the best teachers available, and training them in our unique style of teaching. So please, let me introduce you too:


My name is Mitchell.I am a new teacher at English Village.I have traveled all the way from Australia to Japan, to help Japanese children learn and understand the English language! Back in Australia I was formally a music teacher. I like music, sports, hiking and camping.Come and see for yourself just how fun English Village can be .



Dr Ashtar
Nido information

Hello, my name is Alyssa I am from America and was born and raised in Oregon. I have lived in Japan for five years. I enjoy kimono, drawing and going to local concerts! I love teaching English and hope increase the number of English speakers in Tokushima by encouraging communication in a friendly and fun environment. I speak Japanese so feel free to speak with me anytime!


Hi! I am from the Philippines, I graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Mass Communication and with a Certificate of Teaching. I have taught for 7 years in Preschool and Grade school in the Philippines and in Audi Arabia. I love teaching because you get to spend your career cultivating young minds. I like making art and crafts, and I enjoy cooking. I know that English Village will be your first step in learning English in many different ways with the help of your teachers.


These teachers have been studying and learning about how our core and project lessons work hand in hand to expand upon the standard learning style in Japan Eikaiwa. They are all excited to be working here and look forward to helping your children grow.


Update on our teaching styles
With this time to train up new teachers, we have used this opportunity to expand upon our plans to create the best environment to help children learn to speak and live in a bilingual society.



To this effect we have hired Yvonne, She will be teaching our younger learners, and as someone who grew up learning both her native tongue and English, is perfect to help children learn and grow.


For the higher level learners (Oxford Discover level), we have attained the services of Dr. Ashtar, who is currently training to become a professor. His technical expertise and training for giving exacting and precise instructions will be invaluable.


Our new mixture of teachers allows us to both help students learn traditional styles of English as they would encounter in a western country, they are also learning about the slight differences in pronunciation that they will encounter while in Japan, where the only group language they may have with future employees will be English.


We know that this new system will help create more well rounded students, much better able to approach the English language, not only in its traditional form, but in the more realistic environments that they will encounter in their lives.


Christmas, Lobby Talk and more!

Good evening everybody, I wanted to take this chance to inform everyone of our upcoming event and a new exciting project we are starting at English Village.


First things first, Christmas 2019! We are still finalizing all the details, but one things for certain, it’s going to be fun!


I can’t wait! A certain jolly fellow in a red suit will be there on the day as well.


On top of this exciting news, we also are starting a new Lobby Chat, beginning on the 12th of November. This means for 2 hours each day (Tuesday – Friday, 5pm – 6pm and 7pm – 8pm, Saturday 10:30am – 11:30am, 11:30am-12:30am), a teacher will be available downstairs for free conversation and activities.


The teachers will be rotating, to allow any students to experience all of our teachers, and different accents to help them become more worldly English speakers. I, for one, am excited by the possibilities that this gives us.


This service is free to any of our existing students, as a little extra from us to you. So please, either call us up to book your student in, or pick up a form from the front desk at any time.


We’re looking forward to seeing all our little villagers at our Christmas party this year, and I will be posting more details on this very soon.
